Supporting youth to participate in democratic governance
Ours by Right is a programme that helps youth and youth leaders participate in and strengthen democracy in Uganda. Co-funded by the European Union, the project is part of an intervention into good governance in Uganda.
The project has been an eye-opener and helped us to realise that youth have an important role to play in the development agenda. – District Community Development Officer, Pallisa District
The project supports elected youth councillors and youth civil society organisation leaders in four project districts to lobby and advocate for youth-supported development interventions, promote greater accountability, and more effective participation of youth in monitoring democratic and governance processes.
The project is delivered in partnership with the Uganda Youth Network and we work closely with the district local governments of Pallisa, Nebbi, Apac and Bushenyi.
Youth councillors and youth organisation leaders can download the following resources from the download box below:
- training manual on improving youth participation in governance and development in Uganda
- handbook on improving service delivery through citizen-led budget monitoring.
